the election in 2010. he brought in bill daly, made some other changes. he didn't like the effect, the impact. he's gone back to chief of staff, as ruth said, who is a very good friend of his, national security adviser is very good friend of his. other presidents had friends around them. to shake things up, to get the agenda moving again, to get a sense of a new amount of energy, i think he probably does have to make some personnel changes but i wouldn't hold my breath for them. like george bush, when barack obama is told washington thinks people on cable tv think he should do things, he's less inclined and to stick with the people he knews and management structure he's comfortable with. >> if you take a look at this team, if they weren't his good friends, would they have these jobs? are they the best there is? >> well, i think you could ask that about a lot of presidents. presidents need to have people around them who are loyal but they also need people around them who are capable. i think to some extent the proof is in the pudding in terms of the rollout and effectiveness of health care. th

tax-- true he's not going along for everything for sure, but then we have an election in 2016 which we'll get a new president and i think whether it's a democrat or a republican you'll find the new president far more amenable to good economic policies than obama and his administration has been. i mean, you could get another clinton-like democrat in there or you could get a reagan republican in there. and you would have a boom that you couldn't imagine how wonderful it's going to be. and that's why i'm really bullish about the stock market. i think the stock market looks at what will be, stuart, not what has been. and when you look to the future, i am very optimistic about change in america. i mean, just look at what's happened with obamacare. i mean, who-- you know it has to collapse, you know it's just built on unsound theory and unsound data, but seeing is actually collapsing before our very eyes is very, very fulfilling and not in the sense that we want it to collapse, but that we know the silly give away themes don't work. stuart: we hear you, i think you're putting a smile on a lo
